Jo Koy delivers hilarious night of comedy at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena

Comedian Jo Koy made his debut at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on Monday night, and indeed, he did not disappoint. He made the entire audience laugh their stomachs off with his jokes that depict moments from his real life, those that everyone find all too relatable.

Jo Koy’s outrageously funny ‘Just Kidding World Tour’ gave his audience a surreal experience, wowing everyone with his material inspired by his life with his friends and family—each joke producing gut-aching laughter from the crowd.

He has also perfectly incorporated Pinoy culture in his acts, with his bits showing how his mother pronounces words with a thick Filipino accent and how she strictly raised them. Growing up in a Filipino-American family, Jo Koy made sure every antic reflected the funny memories of his weird childhood.

Another highlight, however, was how he induced nostalgia among the crowd—particularly the 90s babies. He had the crowd sing the decade’s favorites such as No Scrubs by TLC and All My Life by K-Ci & JoJo.

For a performer with two Netflix specials and a third on the way, Koy is deserving of the success he is having in arenas around the world. Coca-Cola Arena proved itself once again to be the perfect setting for a huge international artist with the City Walk venue adding to the whole experience.

The ‘Just Kidding World Tour’ may have been almost 2 hours of hilarious laughter, but after Jo Koy’s performance, the audience still wanted more. Perhaps, that’s his charm—producing jokes that perfectly land in a way that the audience were kept in a funny bubble. One where time goes by so fast.
